To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.

*NO STAR* LOOKS LIKE FALSE AD: SO SAD!!:(( ~ THIS BOOK IS INCOMPLETE. NOT INCLUDE SOME MOST IMPORTANT PARTS...RECEIVING STIGMATA, JOYFUL DEATH, CHRIST CHILD APPEARING DURING CHRISTMAS MASS... BOOK ENDS WITH ST FRANCIS EATING CAKES WHILE VISITING. VERY SADDENED. THEY WANT ME TO PAY TO RETURN; I PLAN TO USE LABEL PRINTED. NOT THE WAY TO TREAT A CUSTOMER. EVEN *AMAZON* IS TRYING TO RUSH ME IN 3 DAYS!!! WHAT IS GOING ON; POOR TREATMENT, FOR ONE WHO LOVES THIS POOR SAINT ~ BUT RICHER BY FAR THAN THEY..IN THINGS *NOT* OF THIS EARTH!!:)AMEN...
I got this as a Christmas present for my son -he loves Tomie de Paola books, and one of his patron saints is St. Francis - so I thought he'd enjoy this. At first he wasn't thrilled with it because there were "so many words," but once we started reading he was enthralled. After learning so much about St. Francis's life, my son is now much more excited to have him as a patron saint! I should add that I really enjoyed reading the book as well, and would read it again even if I weren't reading it to one of my kids.
Tomie dePaola has a gift for retelling stories of faith. I love his illustrations and the way he tells a story in such a way that both children and adults will take away something from it. I had this book for my children and have long used it as a read aloud with my religion students. I have recently purchased used copies to put away for future grandchildren. I wish they would put this back in print.
